Wiki Samples

Other examples - of how wikis are currently being used for educational purposes.

  • Holocaust Wiki Project

    Following a WebQuest model, this project asks students to create a branching simulation about a family in the Holocaust. They have to come up with realistic decision points, describe the pros and cons, address the consequences of each decision, and create a narrative that reflects their research on the Holocaust.

  • Pay It Forward Wiki

    This wiki is being created by students attending Arapahoe High School who are currently reading Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. They are using it to brainstorm project ideas and eventually propose a plan to give back to their community so that the world doesn't lose individualism and end up like the world described by Huxley in the book.

  • Thousand and One Flat World Tales Project

    This project eplaces the "authentic" publishing of the 20th century classroom--hallways, newsletters, literary journals, etc--with authentic publishing in the 1001 Flat World Tales "blook": a potentially endliess series of stories from students around the world, inter-linked on individual student blogs.

  • Wikibooks

    Wikibooks is a collection of open content textbooks, manuals, and other texts with supporting book-based texts that are written collaboratively. This site is a wiki, meaning that anyone, including you, can edit any book module right now by clicking on the edit this page link that appears in every Wikibooks module.

  • wikiHow

    wikiHow is a collaborative writing project to build the world's largest how-to manual.

  • Wikiville
